U.S. looks for extradition of Huawei CFO, inflaming U.S.-China tensions

|By:, SA News Editor

Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested by Canadian authorities at the request of the United States, Canada says.

Huawei confirms the U.S. is seeking extradition of Meng to face unspecified charges in the Eastern District of New York. The company says it's not aware of any wrongdoing by Meng and has gotten very little information.

The move is likely to inflame tensions between the U.S. and China even amid the backdrop this week of an apparent trade truce.

Meng is also the daughter of Huawei's founder.

A bail hearing is set for Friday; Canada's Justice Department says a publication ban requested by Meng prevents the release of further details.
